  • One of the city's most historic features is situated across the road from the church of St. Munchin’s. The Treaty Stone was where the Treaty of Limerick was signed to guarantee civil and religious liberty for the people of Ireland in 1691.
  • St. Munchin is the patron saint of Limerick, and it is believed that he lived in the late seventh century.
  • This site was one of 23 venues for the 31st edition of EVA in 2007, curated by Klaus Ottmann (b. 1964, Germany).
